"Two and a Half Men" star Jon Cryer writing a "candid" memoir

Jon Cryer, an actor who knows a thing or two about Charlie Sheen and Demi Moore among others, is penning a memoir.

The Emmy-winning star of CBS' "Two and a Half Men" has a deal with New American Library, an imprint of Penguin Random House. The publisher announced Wednesday that the book, currently untitled, is scheduled to be released next spring.

According to the New American Library, Cryer, 48, will share "candid" and "fascinating" stories about his 30-year career. He debuted on film opposite Moore in "No Small Affair" and became known to millions as "Duckie," Molly Ringwald's pal in the 1986 film "Pretty in Pink."

"In these times of truly global crisis when fear is outracing hope, I think we can all be grateful that the guy who played Duckie in 'Pretty in Pink' is writing a book," he joked in a statement released Wednesday. "It'll be filled with just what you'd expect from me; juicy tidbits on international monetary policy, catty comments regarding agriculture in Central Asia and, of course, forbidden anecdotes about stamp collecting. And maybe I'll talk about Charlie Sheen."
